I really want to be proud of where I live

But it’s really hard to do when my elected officials embarrass the crap out of me every time I turn around. Turns out the Evan Bayh and Richard Lugar are both at the top of the list of politicians who take sleazy free vacations from lobbyists. Way to represent, guys.
And because I was in the hospital when it went down, I haven’t had a chance to blog about my very own city-county council representative, Patrice Abdullah. He’s a democrat. I voted for him. I actually took off work early one day, back when he was running for office, to go to our neighborhood meeting to talk to him and ask him where he stood on gay rights issues. He assured me that he didn’t believe in discrimination. But he recently voted against a change in Indianapolis’ Human Rights Ordinance that would protect gay people from being discriminated against, claiming his Muslim beliefs meant that he was expected to discriminate against gay people.
Guess what Patrice? You’re not going to be on the city-county council in the next election. I may not be able to do anything about the retard in the Oval Office, but I can single-handedly get your ass kicked to the curb, and I will be doing exactly that.

  1. I agree with you about Patrice. His exact words that night to the media were “I don’t think that I should be forced to compromise my integrity and my beliefs as to what God put here for us to obey and to accept.”
    If I have anything to say… this a-hole will NOT make it past the primary. I don’t care if I have to go door to door for a candidate….. he’s going down…..

    Two-faced cowardly man… He and Ginny Cain make a helluva team. Who says that Republicans and Democrats can’t get along? And they can both get voted out of office together too!
